NOAA's State of the Climate: August 2011

Click here to see the complete details and overview of August 2011 from NOAA. Some of the climatic "highlights" noted in this overview include:

"....Texas is experiencing a drought of greater intensity, but not yet duration, than those of the 1930s and 1950s.

An analysis of Texas statewide tree-ring records dating back to 1550 indicates that the summer 2011 drought in Texas is matched by only one summer (1789) in the 429-year tree-ring record, indicating that the summer 2011 drought appears to be unusual even in the context of the multi-century tree-ring record."
